Default LinkedIn confirms security breach, 'some passwords' affected

Reports began swirling this morning that around six million passwords attached to LinkedIn accounts had been compromised, and after looking into the matter, the site has confirmed that "some of the passwords" attached to accounts of LinkedIn members have been affected. The network doesn't specify the number of passwords leaked, nor does it confirm the rumored count of six million. It does, however, promise that it will invalidate passwords of the hit accounts -- and vows to send an email to each affected user with instructions on how to reset their password, followed by another piece of correspondence explaining what happened. Below you'll find the company's official statement, as well as what it is doing to ensure its members are safe.
